An interesting case of mass in Riedel's lobe of liver

At first, ultrasound imaging of the right kidney shows a possible mass in the lower pole of kidney.

The above ultrasound image seems to confirm this possibility.

Imaging of the right lobe of liver shows the mass to be connected to a tongue of liver tissue extending from the right lobe of liver. The mass is at the tip of the long beak of liver tissue draped over the anterior surface of right kidney. This is the typical appearance of a Riedel's lobe of liver with a mass located in its tip.

The gall bladder is normal.
